The Apollo Ivory mask is one of the most rare and important looted antiquities ever. Many believe it was carved by Phidias, considered to be one of the best classical sculptors of Greece. His remarkable work can be found on the Parthenon.
A cyclops in Greek mythology and later Roman mythology, was a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of his forehead. The name is widely thought to mean "round-eyed" or "circle-eyed". Hesiod described three one-eyed Cyclopes, Brontes, Steropes and Arges the sons of Uranus and Gaia, brothers of the Titans, builders and craftsmen, while the epic poet Homer described another group of mortal herdsmen Cyclopes.
